Water reforms in Queensland have made it possible for water users to buy water to expand their operations and sell water they do not need. The water trading market has been introduced to address the increasing competition for water without compromising the sustainable allocation and use of the state's water resources. This series of brochures has been prepared to provide information about the Queensland water trading framework and the implications of buying or selling water entitlements.
